Finally, a finish

Cindy, it looks adorable and I want to see more! It just shows up as about 1" square on my screen - is there anything I can do to make it bigger?

Criminy. What the heck?
I have no idea, but I'll see what I can do.
I am hating Webshots more every day.

Try this. And if I have given you all free reign to delve into my webshots albums, rearrange them however you please. I have no idea what I'm doing.
The new quilt is in my "quilts" folder. Duh.

How precious, Cindy. I love that quilt. Especially enjoyed your fabric choices; just purrfect for petite baskets. Polly

It, it ... was a kit, Polly. It looks exactly like it did on the cover of the Fons & Porter magazine. Which is what I wanted.
I have no talent for making fabric choices. My talent is copying exactly. And that's ok, I'm a hell of a craftsman.

LOL, Cindy. When I stick my foot in my mouth, I get all the way up to the knee! I very well understand no talent for fabric choices. I would so much love to be able to paint a likeness but it's a gift I just wasn't given. The Russian Ballet hasn't invited me to audition either. We will enjoy the talents we have. Yes we will. Polly

Hey, that's okay. That's my talent too; I was gifted with a lot of patience for tedious work, and I think that's the most important thing! Besides *enjoying* it while you're doing it. That's the #1 thing, no? (that's why I love fabric that comes in a "series" of bolts that match/ contrast well. I can't go wrong with them!) You really *are* a wonderful craftsman. That's a gorgeous quilt. Sherry

Oh Cindy, the quilt is just charming and cheerful. I really like the pieced basket blocks alternating with the applique flower blocks. Great choice of background fabric in the applique blocks too. I'm just getting onto be more more daring with fabrics with definite lines, but they can be so striking.
What size is the quilt?

Oh heck, the craftmanship is the primary thing, isn't it? A person can pick all the gorgeous colors in the world, but if you can't put them together it's a moot point. And so we're not even going to talk about my many attempts at clothes sewing. Harrumph! (Yep, I like sewing flat things like quilts. ;-)

Hmmm. This quilt may just inspire me to try 4" blocks. The smallest I've done is 6". Now see what you've gone and done? I've already got a list of quilts I want to do a mile long! ;-)

Yes, but keep in mind that when you are talking about small quilts, they (usually) finish faster and take less fabric. I buy mostly fat quarters.
And what are you going to do with 30 bed quilts? Where can you store them? 30 miniature quilts can be stuffed in a drawer!

Good point! Even with the relatively few quilts I have, storage is beginning to be an issue. :-(
